Call me a wuss, but The Pagan Stone scared the living daylights out of me. NR's description of the Big Evil was so good that my vivid imagination didn't have any problem bringing it to life. I actually had to stop reading this book last night and find something "lighter" to do, because the Big Evil was the last thing I wanted to have on my mind when I turned off all the lights.

Years ago, after their blood brother ritual, Gage, Fox and Caleb emerged from the woods, each with a...more

A great ending to a good trilogy - even with too many over-stated conversations…

**Spoiler Alert** - review will contain spoilers

I soooo wanted to say a perfect ending to the trilogy, but I can’t. I was so looking forward to reading this one, to giving it a 5-star rating, like I do with most of NR’s novels, but I can’t.

We continue the Sign of Seven trilogy, this time with Gage and Cybil’s story. While it’s obvious to the reader that these two will end up together (every love story has to have an...more

Recommended to Isis FG by: favorite author, continuation of a serie
Third and last book in the Sign of Seven trilogy by Nora Roberts. And possibly my favorite of the three. It's a tough call between this one and Blood Brothers. I think maybe I liked the romance in book 1 a little bit more (it's a little sweeter), and the overall plot progression of this one (book 3) more. So yeah, it's a bit of a toss-up to which I liked best.

The Pagan Stone continues/ends the tale of Hawkins Hollow, which has been plagued for twenty-years by a nasty evil demon who comes out and...more

I'm sorry, I was just bored by this book. Research, research, research interspersed with predictable demon attacks. I didn't really feel a connection to the characters and I started to skim a lot of the book. As is often the case, especially with the last two trilogies, after a two and a half book buildup, the ending was anticlimactic. I still think Three Sisters Island was her best trilogy with a supernatural thread and I kind of feel like the trilogies in general need a reboot--they don't feel...more

OK, I'm just going to write my review of the whole trilogy here. And I'm not entirely sure if it's a review of this particular trilogy or a review of Nora Roberts in recent years. So, just hang in there.

I have been reading Nora Roberts for about 10 years now. I'm pretty sure that I've read most (if not all) of what she's written. Therefore, I think it's safe to say that she now officially SUCKS! Now, I understand, when an author is as prolific as Roberts is, you're going to get a bit stale. It's...more

Nora Roberts never seems to disappoint! In the stunning conclusion of her Sign of Seven Trilogy, Gage and Cybil struggle to keep from being coupled up, even though it's completely obvious that Fate (a.k.a. Nora Roberts) intends for them to fall in love and live happily ever after. The six friends also have to come up with a way to defeat the demon known as Twisse and save Hawkins Hollow from his evil machinations. The eventual climactic fight was suspenseful and well-plotted, and Roberts did not...more

Tempo de Ler
Tenho aguardado ansiosamente por Pedra Pagã, o último livro da trilogia Signo dos Sete…e valeu bem o tempo de espera!

Durante a maior parte do tempo, o nosso já bem conhecido conjunto de heróis concentra mente e músculos na derrota do inimigo, mas sobra ainda muito espaço para o tempestuoso romance entre Cybil e Gage.

Ambos de carácter fortemente vincado, Cyb e Gage sabem bem o que querem e envolverem-se um com o outro não consta na lista! Gage não se quer comprometer de forma alguma, gosta de man...more

So, there really isn't a point in my reviewing this book, just read Marianne's and it will tell you EXACTLY what I thought:

"I really really enjoyes this book. I want to say it was my favorite of all three but I don't really remember the other two very well. I know that I was less confused in terms of the characters in this book then I was the second. I LOVED Cybil and Gages relationship and how they great into a couple. It wasn't sappy, cheesy romance. It just was. The ending was a bit too clean...more

What can i say. Alittlemoreparanormal very predictable book. I really used to love a Nora Roberts boo... a little break from reality but she has really gone to far. All of her characters are all the same and the plots..... much to be desired. But I had to finish it...

"I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat". This quote, by Winston Churchill, is the first thing that grabbed my attention to this novel. Nora Roberts used this quote, that was said in the middle of a speech by Churchill in the times of the war between the British and the Nazis, to convey the tough and vicious hardships and danger that we're about to explore. Gage Turner, a boy that made a huge mistake when he tided his brotherhood with his two best friends by spilling their blo...more

Mais uma trilogia que chegou ao fim e novamente vem aquela sensação de vazio que me aparece sempre que termino de ler um livro que adoro! Queria mais, muito mais… O livro acabou de uma forma tão perfeita que queria acompanhar as vidas dos três casais até que já fossem velhinhos e estivessem acompanhados dos seus filhos e netos. Nora Roberts tem este efeito em mim, são raros os livros da autora que me deixam desgostosa. Ela tem uma maneira de escrever muito...more

Three boys who shared their birthday, Caleb, Fox, and Gage, decided to celebrate their tenth birthday at the Pagan Stone, a strange, altar-like stone in the middle of the woods surrounding Hawkins Hollow, the village where the three grew up.

A simple vow to always be friends sealed with their blood, unleashed an entity that‘s been haunting them ever since.

Every seven years, for seven days in the seventh month, the small town of Hawkins Hollow descends into madness. Strange accidents happen; neigh...more

I love happy endings! I really enjoyed this trilogy. This was my first Nora Roberts read and I am glad I gave her books a try. I am giving this a 4 star because it made me laugh out loud when the guys were teasing each other or when the whole group was teasing each other, there were parts that were very funny.

The first book in this trilogy focused on Caleb and Quinn and the second book focused on Fox and Layla with each book getting closer to destroying the evil that reaked habit over the town H...more

I read this book because I came to work one day and mentioned I had forgotten to bring my book for lunch and my co-worker gave me this one to read as she had just finished it. That explains why I did not read books 1 and 2 of this trilogy. That DOESN'T explain why I won't read books 1 and 2 of this trilogy.

I had never read a Nora Roberts book before. Maybe this wasn't the one to start with. I have barely heard of her. I'm not a romance reader and I think that's her main genre.

I was fairly amused...more

Posso já afirmar que foi a pior trilogia de Nora Roberts que li. Não gostei do início, não gostei do meio e não gostei do fim.
Achei o demónio muito mal caracterizado, sempre com os mesmos truques - nada original. Mas o que menos gostei foi mesmo as relações amorosas destes três casais. Primeiro, acho que a escritora fez mal em juntá-los logo no primeiro livro tal como disse na altura (Opinião Irmãos de Sangue).
Segundo, e agora mais em relação...more

I am writing one review for all three books in the Sign of Seven Trilogy. The other two books can be found here: Blood Brothers and The Hollow. I knew the entire time I was reading this trilogy that Nora Roberts was the author but I couldn’t help but be reminded of Stephen King while reading. Of course, this is Nora Roberts so we aren’t going to get the horror that we do from a King book but we did get a similar formula that I love from his books. Small town setting, lifelong friends and of cour...more

The conclusion of Nora Roberts' Sign of Seven trilogy, The Pagan Stone, was about what I expected: the remaining couple of the feature characters, Gage and Cybil, wind up pairing off while they deal with their respective bits of familial angst. Cal and Quinn and Fox and Layla get to radiate soon-to-be-wedded bliss. The showdown with the Big Bad comes. Things go splody, and it's not really much of a spoiler for me to conclude that our six demon fighters do prevail. This is, after all, a Nora Robe...more
Marquetta (LoveToReadForFun)
I absolutely loved the first two books and was anxiously awaiting to read the final book of this trilogy. I will preface by saying that I love Nora Roberts and everything that she writes. I inhaled the first two books; I read them in a day. I waited six long months for the release of the third book - The Pagan Stone. With that being said, I hate to say this, but I was a little disappointed. I can't put my finger on one particular thing, but this book didn't grab me like Blood Brothers and The Ho...more

If you've read NR's other paranormal trilogies and liked them enough to think "I'd like to find books similar to this" then you'll enjoy this trilogy. It's very very similar because quite a bit of the paranormal elements are recycled from one trilogy to the next.

An enjoyable end to a trilogy that I didn't think I would enjoy. I think it did end suddenly. But that is fine. I did have a tough time with a character named Fox. Kept making me feel like the X-Files.

This book is the end to the Blood Brothers Trilogy. Although a bit predictable, it is a good end to the series and a very quick, easy read.

This book focuses on Cybil and Gage. They happen to be the two individuals that haven't "hooked up" yet. Cal and Quinn are already engaged, and Fox and Layla are well on their way. I thought that this book focused on Gage and Cybil much more than on the task of beating the Evil and saving Hawkins Hollow from the plague that it suffers each year during the Sev...more

Por distração minha parti para a leitura deste livro sem ter lido os dois anteriores pertencentes à trilogia. Se os tivesse lido de certeza que me agarraria mais às personagens e à história em si.

Mesmo assim, gostei deste registo de Nora Roberts, um bocadinho fora do romance lamechas e mais sobrenatural. Tudo bem que coisas de forças malévolas, demónios e afins não são muito o meu gosto literário, mas gostei deste livro, ficando curiosidade de ler os outros dois.

I honestly miss the passion she showed us in the 70's, 80's and 90's. I went.."what!?" and had to re-read the last half of the story...to verify that yup! it really was mishmash. Ah well, the masses will buy it and NR won't be hurting for cash, I'm sure. I still honor Nora Roberts as "once upon a time, the best female author on the planet" but lately the books come out as assembly line projects. Predictable... (or is my lament only because I've bought and read every NR book available?) In any ca...more

Loved this series! I read it just a few days. What is odd is that I have only ever read 1 other Nora Roberts story before, and don't really have any desire to read another but this series was just great. I especially loved Gage's character.



There was a gerat mix of characters of personalities throughout the book. The 'fate' portion of the book was a bit hard to believe and predictable but by that point I was so hooked on the story I didn't even care anymore! I will definitely read these again!

Her family were avid readers, so books were always important in her life. She attended a Catholic school and credits the nuns with instilling in her a sense of discipline. During her...more
